Mawgojzeta | 161 comments My goal this year is actually 110, although at the rate I was at last year, I suspect I will hit the 130s.

stormhawk | 1184 comments I read Silverlock years ago on a friend's recommendation. I remember enjoying it, but don't remember a darn thing about it.

Mawgojzeta | 161 comments I am pretty sure in a couple of years I won't remember it much, either.

Good job on getting to 88 and it's only July!

Mawgojzeta | 161 comments My library system is incredible! I have only failed to get one movie and one book I was looking for, and I want some pretty obscure stuff sometimes.

Mawgojzeta | 161 comments Having reached 100, I thought I would take a moment to comment on a few things.

This year I plan to re-read all the CJ Cherryh books I have read before. I am really enjoying this.

In Watermelon Sugar (#6), How to Raise Your I.Q. by Eating Gifted Children (#11), and The Little Black Fish (#37) were the most personally disappointing books this year. There were others I really did not care for, but these three were ones I expected to enjoy and thoroughly DID NOT. I will qualify that by saying The Little Black Fish turned out to be a hacked up version of the true story (which I found online and did enjoy).

And now....

101. Evil Plans: Having Fun on the Road to World Domination by Hugh MacLeod

102. The Great Gatsby by F. Scott Fitzgerald
